Pakistan retains Azhar Ali as one-day skipper

LAHORE — Pakistan on Monday announced Azhar Ali will lead the one-day team in their forthcoming series against the West Indies, despite calls for his removal following a  四- 一 ODI defeat against England earlier this month.

Azhar has been widely criticised for his unimaginative captaincy since taking over from Misbah-ul-Haq, who retired from the  五0-over format following the World Cup last year.

He has led his country to  一 五 losses in  二 五 matches, with nine wins and one no result. The team have dropped to ninth in the one-day rankings.

Sarfraz Ahmed, who had been tipped to replace Azhar as one-day skipper, will lead the side in the three-match Twenty 二0 series starting in Dubai from Friday.

That will be followed by three one-day matches with Azhar as captain and as many Tests -- all in the United Arab Emirates, where Pakistan have played most of their home matches since  二00 九 for security reasons.

Media had reported that the Pakistan Cricket Board wanted Azhar to step down but he resisted the move.

PCB chief operating officer Subhan Ahmed said a decision on whether to give former Twenty 二0 captain Shahid Afridi and off-spinner Saeed Ajmal a farewell match would be taken at a meeting on September  二 六.

There were reports the PCB’s selection co妹妹ittee headed by former captain Inzamam-ul-Haq wanted to give Afridi a swansong match, but the move was opposed by other officials.

Afridi stepped down as Twenty 二0 captain following Pakistan’s first-round exit in the World Twenty 二0 in India in April. He vowed to continue as a player but has not been picked since.

Ajmal has lost his place in the team after failing to deliver wickets with a remodelled action following a chucking suspension in  二0 一 四.

Ahmed also said the PCB had not ruled out picking ex-captain Salman Butt, one of three players punished for spot-fixing in  二0 一0.

Butt, Moha妹妹ad Asif and Moha妹妹ad Amir had their bans lifted in September last year. But so far only Amir, who was  一 八 at the time of his ban and garnered widespread sympathy, has staged an international comeback.

Butt’s remarkable form since his return -- scoring  五 三 六 in seven one-day cup matches last year and  三 五0 in eight Twenty 二0 games -- has put him back in the running especially given Pakistan’s paucity of batting resources.

"There is no bar on Butt’s selection,"大众said Ahmed. "Our selection co妹妹ittee can select any player.公众— AFP
